What a shock, the same drama queen master of panic JQuick32 is freaking out over a tabloid video (and not shockingly he's crossposted this at the exact same time on the other Clipper forum even though he denies that he is BlueJaysClippers). I wonder if JQuick32 has even listened to the audio that has gotten him into such a tizzy. Well, I just did-- all 9 1/2 min of it, and it's not nearly as bad as the site makes it seem. Basically this is a huge setup by his whore golddigger girlfriend who is obviously baiting him to....

I guess this is a newsflash for new clippers fans. He is what he is, but this is nothing terrible considering he was baited immensely.

Personally, I hope our players and coaches refuse to take the court on Sunday in protest. Force the NBA's hand, make them once and for all get rid of the cancer known as Donald Sterling.

"He was baited"/"it's a setup"/etc. is not an excuse. No normal person is going to start ranting about how they don't want to be around black people no matter what the "setup" is.

He's definitely a troll. He pollutes the other board I use at *** with this same kind of panic-induced filth. He also denies it, which makes him a liar to boot.

I'm not a troll. The people who are trying to put a homeristic spin on this are trolls though. If you can't understand why nothing good can come of an NBA owner saying "don't bring black people to my games" under any circumstances, I can't help you.

right, but we've had a break from it for a while. I guarantee the media is going to blow this up way bigger than it is, ESPECIALLY because Magic Johnson was mentioned.

I hate sterling, and his GF even more. Probably recorded this and tried to blackmail him and he was like.. i don't give a F ....release it

Sterling can believe whatever he wants. We all have skeletons in our closet (although since everyone knows DTS has done racist **** in the past this isn't exactly a closet). You can't kick someone out of a league for having certain beliefs, as long as they don't use those beliefs to discriminate. This isn't an Orwellian era, thank god.

And yes, context is important. He was basically interrogated by his whore girlfriend specifically to say stuff that would incriminate him and get her a big payout.

Why? To deprive the fans that have supported them all season and in the past? That's crazy. They need to not think about him. They knew who he was when they signed here.

The only people affected by this are drama queens like the OP who would rather basketball be a soap opera than a sport.

Yes, you can. The MLB kicked Marge Schott out of their league because she publicly espoused racist and pro-Nazi views while owning the Reds. Unlike the NBA, the MLB actually had a spine and put an end to the embarrassment she brought to the league.

I'd imagine all pro leagues have clauses somewhere that enable owners to be kicked out of the league if they compromise its image in some way. Hard to argue that Sterling isn't worthy of that.

How long have you been a clippers fan? Donald sterling has and will always be a pathetic excuse of a human being. Clipper fans know this , at least the old school fans. That p o s will never change. The good thing is he is old and has few years left.

The audio is very shadey too. The slut was baiting him so hard. Let's hope our players can focus and get through this.

"I hope" was the wrong words in hindsight. What I really wanted to say is that I wouldn't blame them if they did it.

Well I think this could affect free agent signings if it doesn't distract us this year. Maybe. Until now he had been quiet for a while making players believe it was safe to come back into the water so to speak. the league has really nurtured the rise of the clippers and liked having them be good. Now they might be ashamed of us, which could have ramifications...

Luckily everyone already knows Sterling is racist so this is nothing new. Also, its so obvious she was setting him up. I'm confident Doc will keep our guys focused.

The funny thing is people act like Donald Sterling is the only evil in ownership because he makes racist comments now and again. Do you guys have any idea what kind of mentality it takes to become a billionaire owner? The kind of cutthroat POS you have to be to get to the top? Read about Clay Bennett someday if you want to see what a real douche looks like. Where do you draw the line when you want to start regulating who is worthy to own a team? Because them picken's are gonna be slim if you are looking for saints.

I'm on board with ClippersFTW, this audio clip is at the least out of context with very weak 'quotes'. Leave it to Jquick, Warrior fans, and the media to blow this story out of proportion with titles such as "Clipper's Owner Doesn't Want Black People at Staples Centre" and "Donald Sterling Denies Magic Johnson Seating at Clippers Games". Typical spin-off trash. Sucks to be rich with a history of scumbag actions.

Bingo. The players, fans, and league know that he is a racist. This is nothing new. The thing is sterling treats everyone like ****. Elgin Baylor , mike dunleavy, bill fitch. They had to go to court because sterling wouldn't pay out the remaining money on their contracts.

Fans should actually support the players on this team now more than ever. Win the chip for your fan base, who is made up of all races and not for our pathetic owner. Stay strong clipper nation. We as fans been through tough times before and we are still here. Let's support our team.

I'm a new poster , but long time browser. I just had to post on this topic. That was a straight setup, she continued to push the subjecut with him hard. Buy the way I'm a minority, and took no offense by what he said. The way she push him when he was upset, and hurt was wrong. Imagine if yoy where upset with your girlfriend and she recorded you when you where mad. Mark my words The Clipper stars and Doc will back him. The Clips will over come this adversity. Also I am going to come clean and say I have said racist things and jokes but was never was recorded. To be clear I'm not racist, just honest. Sorry for this to be my first post. Go Clips

I'm an African American (Black) and I agree this was baiting, but doesn't

take away from the fact this was a hurtful audio to listen to.

I've been a clipper fan since I can remember I have gone to many games,

bought jerseys, brung family to the games, and it to hear the owner say

he doesn't want his girlfriend to be seen with black people.

My father is a professor of sociology, so I grew up studying and understanding

racism and the different forms in which it permeates our society.

I got the message loud and clear. Am I surprised? No. But it's one

thing to suspect something, and another to hear it come from the mans mouth

loud and clear.

Unfortunately this will affect the team. You have a Black man as a coach

and 9 black players playing heavy minutes.

It must cause conflict to work for a man who blatlantly has come out

and disrespected your community, family, and friends.

Any REAL man would have trouble sleeping at night knowing

the man he works for has just embarrassed him, by essentially

saying I wouldn't want my girlfriend to be seen with you,

your kids, nor your family because they are black.

How do you explain to your kids that you still work for a man

who has disrespected them in one of the worse ways.

Of course we all already know he's a racist. Does that make it any less unacceptable when he starts up with his bigotry? To me, it doesn't.

I'm just tired of it. We have probably the best team in franchise history, we were riding high off two huge playoff wins, and then this happens. I can't tolerate any more of this crap. And if you think I'm the only Clipper fan who wants him gone immediately over this, check any other Clippers site and Twitter, there are a lot of us who feel that way. In fact, it only seems to be on this site that people are making excuses for this.

I won't listen to the audio - too voyeuristic. But the problem is most people will just repeat what they read and not listen to the tape. Again, as far as I know what he said was disgusting. But this is gonna catch fire.

I'm sad.... I'm sad that our country is becoming so soft. Everyone catches "feelings" when something is said that they don't like. I guess I grew up in a different time. A time when people weren't so sensitive.

He's not worth these players feeling conflicted over him. They are above it. He is the last of their reasons to succeed. I support the players and coaches. Not the owner.

There are really only two logical ways to go about this.

If you care about the team, then the last thing you want to do is overreact to this like a drama queen. This is exactly the reaction that TMZ wants you to have-- and it's what causes exaggerated stories to become actual real world problems in the locker-room. So, if you care about the team, don't let this get under your skin, at least not until the offseason.

Now, on the other hand, if you are so morally outraged to have a man of such low moral fiber be the owner of this team, then you really should cease being a fan. Your dollars ultimately go to this man, so why would you waste your effort cheering on the team?

Welcome to the boards. There is one thing about making racial jokes and stereotypes and whatnot. Kat Williams and Kevin hart make a living making fun of other races. It's one thing to make racial jokes and there is another thing of being a racist.

Donald sterling is a flat out racist. The way he sounds in the audio depicts a man that clearly does not like minorities. The audio clearly also depicts a gold digging whore looking for a payday. I hope magic hit that broad raw. Lol

what's worse, DTS being DTS or his "girlfriend" for actually listening to him? she takes gold digger to a whole new level of selling out.

I agree, there's a big difference. Sterling crosses the line into vile, hateful racism, no matter how hard certain homers on this website want to spin it into something innocuous so they can look like "better" fans of the team or something.

Just when I come over to the Clippers side this sh*t happens. This could end our playoff run.

Time for Magic Johnson to take over the Clippers.

Addendum: Are we 110% sure this is actually Donald Sterling?

Nobody is making excuses for sterling. Everyone here I'm pretty certain would prefer that the nba forces him to sell. Doubt it's going to happen.

Serious question, did you just recently become a clipper fan and have never heard all the racist crap he did not as owner but in real estate?

Go **** yourself, BlueJays. You were never a real fan to begin with. You jump ship and call the team pretenders the moment they lose a game.

If you hate the owner so much, then stop giving your dollars to him by rooting for his team. It's as simple as that. I'm not "cool with racism" but I don't really give a **** about the owner and I'm not going to be morally outraged because "OMG there is a person out there that's uncomfortable with blacks", as if he's the only high powered figure who isn't mother Theresa. Learn how the world works.

I know all about his past. I and many other Clipper fans are just at our wits' end now, and the timing has a lot to do with it.

And no, people in here are making excuses for him, whether it's pretending he was "set up" and doesn't actually feel that way, or calling people "trolls" for being rightfully outraged at his latest embarrassment.

If this is addressed to me, no I never heard that. Just that he was cheap and changed his ways to put together this squad.

Certainly some awful comments, if true, made by Donald Sterling. This was a terrible lack of judgement by Sterling, but also a sneaky and underhanded move by his girlfriend to tape private conversations in an obvious attempt to sabotage. Obviously, Sterling would not have made these comments in public, nor do we have a clear take of his mental state when he made the comments. But it does not excuse again their stinging nature.

Chalk this down as another as another character-revealing, damaging action committed by Sterling. But guess what- this is not going to affect the Clipper TEAM. These guys are playing for each other, playing for the fans, and playing for one goal. They are pretty darn focused, and these inappropriate comments have nothing to do with them. And just because the owner may be whack, it doesn't mean the organization isn't full of good people.
